Organic Buttercrunch Lettuce Seeds (65 days)


Buttercrunch was developed by George Raleigh of Cornell University.

Buttercrunch produces a nice head of mild buttery flavored 6-8" in high, thick, juicy, slightly crumpled dark green leaves and white-yellow heart.

Very long season.  Performs well in spring and fall.

Don't forget the heart, which is some folks' favorite!  Buttercrunch is slow to bolt and is heat tolerant.

Planting Tips for Organic Heirloom Lettuce Seeds:

Sow directly into very fertile, loose soil.  Thin down to final spacing once plants are established.  For best results, plant in spring or fall.  Harvest outside leaves for a continual harvest.  For longer harvest, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heat Tolerance:  If you are growing lettuce in the heat, plant them where they will get afternoon shade.  Lettuce is a spring and fall crop in really hot areas.

Harvest Tips: For a continual harvest, sow a new crop every 2-3 weeks if cutting full heads, otherwise harvesting outside leaves will encourage a longer harvest from individual plants.
